Jun So Min Shares Candid Thoughts About Loneliness As She Introduces Her First Book
Jun So Min expressed her honest feelings as she introduced her first book.
Titled “You Can Call Me After a Drink,” the book revolves around her honest and realistic thoughts about love, loneliness, and life in general.
On January 19, the actress shared a picture of her new book along with her candid feelings. She started off by confessing, “Actually, I’m very sad right now. They may not actually be interested, but when someone sees my blank face and asks me if something is wrong, that might mean that I am loved.”
She continued, “Having no one that would come running [to me] right away no matter how hard I look through my cell phone means it’s not love. Since when did I become alone?”
Jun So Min mentioned her book, saying, “I saw my friend gently wiping away her tears as she read a few pages of my book. I was happier and more grateful [for that] than any other expression. I felt understood. What I’ve always wanted was to be understood, and they did that. They were proud [of me]. My stories that [people] would not listen to, that I couldn’t finish, that they didn’t bother to think about like [they’re in] some sort of shell…If you now have the ease to slowly read them and mull over them, please open [this book]…I wrote down my thoughts that you were bored of, uninterested in, and didn’t want to hear.”
She added, “If it was a story that everyone knew… I wonder if they would have run over and embraced me. No, it might have been the same. That’s my lingering hope, my expectations, my dream, and the illusion that they could have known when they actually didn’t.”
She informed fans that she will be holding a book signing at Kyobo Book Center in Gangnam, Seoul at 5 p.m. KST and said, “Let’s cry together. Bring your handkerchiefs. I, Jun So Min, am very honored.”

사실 지금 많이 슬퍼요. 별 관심 없겠지만 사실 누군가 내 넋나간 표정에 무슨일 있냐 물어주는 것 조차 저는 사랑받고 있는 일일지 몰라요. 휴대폰을 아무리 뒤져 보아도 당장 달려와 줄 사람 한명 없다는 것은 어쩌면 사랑하고 있지 않다는 뜻이겠지요. 언제부터 이렇게 저는 혼자였을 까요. 제 친구가 저의 책 몇 페이지를 읽다가 살며시 손으로 눈물을 훔치는 모습을 보았어요. 그 어떤 표현보다 행복하고 감사했어요. 이해 받는 기분이었어요. 내가 그토록 바래왔던 나의 이해들을,알아주었어요. 기특해 해줬어요. 듣지않으려 했고, 마저 하지 못했고,껍질처럼 생각조차 해주지 않았던 나의 이야기들을……… 이제는 조금 찬찬히 입안에서 굴리며 녹여줄 여유가 있다면, 펼쳐주세요…. 너희는 지겹고 관심없고 듣기싫었던 몰랐던 내 마음을 나는 이렇게 적어 보았으니까.모두 다 알고 있는 이야기라면 … 만약에 달려와 안아줬을까. 아니, 안들 똑같겠지. 그건 나의 미련 , 혹시 기대, 로망, 몰랐는데 알 수도 있었다는 착각. 먼 길을 돌아 올 조차 관심없을 이야기.#술먹고전화해도되는데 #하세요#저는하고 후회하며 미련없는타입. #여러분 2월1일 5시 광화문 교보에서 역사적인 만남을 가져요. 같이 울어요, 우리. 손수건 가져 오세요. 저 전소민 너무 영광입니다. ?
